Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
There is a right way to start the engine, and then there is anything other than the right way, whic would make starting harder to impossible.
Can you tell me step by step how you are going about starting the engine.
1. Open engine compartment to evacuate any fumes
2. Turn key to right (3 to 5 second crank and turn switch back to left)
3. Repeat and usually takes 10 to 15 attempts before turning over
4. Often dies out until engine runs for 2 minutes
I will try this on Saturday and see if it works. I have pushed the throttle ahead once only and that did not seem to help. Hopefully 2 to 3 times will do the trick.
Makes sense. Hopefully this solves my issue. Thanks for the help.
You are most welcome and I was glad I could help.
I think that should do it. If you had a further question on the issue by all means feel free to ask. If not, Just incase you do not understand the way the website works (and some folks do not). You do have to put forth a positive rating in order for it to credit me for helping you. When ratings are not done, the website simply keeps your deposit and they will not credit me. Please let me know if you run into any problems or errors when trying to do it. If you do have a problem, just reply back "I rate Jason's service _______" and fill in the blank.
Questions do not lose out, so if you have to come back tomorrow or next week with follow up questions to this you still can even after doing a rating. And if I have saved you quite a bit of money, or saved you a trip to the dealer, tips are always greatly appreciated.
